Chris Daicos is authentic, genuine and  compelling. I have found her to be one of the most engaging and professional presenters I have worked with over the past 8 years and in every instance the feedback from my various leadership and staff teams has been one highlighting these strong qualities. Chris has been able to enthuse aspirant leaders, challenge various levels of thinking and encourage risk taking in managing challenge and change. Her warmth and compassion is her strength which is solidly supported by her expertise, knowledge and skill. I highly recommend Chris as a facilitator, presenter and an advocate for positive change.

Thank you very much for your presentation last night. The focus on two or three easy things that students can do was just what they need at this time. When I went for a walk with my daughter last night, we listed the five things we are grateful for. So easy to do, so often not done.

Thank you very much for facilitating the ‘Flourishing in 2021’ workshop with our staff yesterday.  It was a powerful way to start the year.  Staff were highly engaged and the feedback has been incredibly positive.

Chris brings humour in her presentation which lightens up the topic in building resilience in children. She highlighted the key points in building resilience by developing essential skills, habits and attitudes that can help children build relationships with others, managing conflicts and build their self-confidence….. Overall it is very informative, with fun activities that help parents put the idea into a better perspective.
